The lead actors of "Hero" movie, Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty, have one more reason to smile. The advance booking of the film commenced partially in India on Wednesday.

The pre-booking counter for "Hero" opened on Wednesday in some of the single screens and multiplexes with good responses. Circuits including National Capital Region (NCR), Pune, Bangalore, Kolkata and others started seeing bookings within hours.

Several shows of "Hero", especially in NCR, Mumbai and Pune region, have already started to fill up and hence, the movie is expected to have a good opening day at the box office. 

"Hero" is produced by Salman Khan and the actor is leaving no stone unturned to make the film a grand debut for Sooraj and Athiya. The music of the film is already a hit, especially Salman's "Main Hoon Hero Tera" song.

And now producer Salman along with Sooraj and Athiya are promoting the movie on various platforms.

"Hero" is a romantic comedy film also featuring Tigmanshu Dhulia, Aditya Pancholi, Imran Hasnee and Sharad Kelkar in pivotal roles. The film, which will release on 11 September, is made on a lavish budget. 

Talking about the budget of the film during an event, Salman said small budget could have turned the film into a disastrous one. 

"The biggest challenge for me in this movie was not to care about the budget. Caring about the budget even a bit, could make this film into a disastrous film. So the kind of budgets that I work on, we've done the same budget for Athiya and Sooraj because their journey starts from this film onwards, so we didn't want to leave any stone unturned," Salman told media, according to The Indian Express.
